PLEASE NOTE

There are now separate numbers for the Parish Office (703-221-4044) or (703-291-7285), School Office (703-221-3868), and Religious Education Office (703-221-3127). If a parishioner wishes to reach someone in those offices, we ask that they please call the designated number. This is a change from the previous arrangement where you would be able to dial an extension after reaching the general number of the parish. We had to make this change to correct problems we were having with the former system.
